Knockouts - Men

Singles matches for Men are played using the full difference in handicaps.

In four ball events, the lowest handicapped player concedes 90% of their handicap difference (rounded to a whole number) to each of the other players.

Matches All Square on the 18th must continue from the 1st Hole until a hole is won.

Entry details are posted to the club notice boards well in advance of each closing date.

Winners receive their trophies at the Annual Dinner and Dance.

Except for the Winter Knockouts, the latest date for each round is set so that the Finals should be completed by mid-September.

Prompt arrangement of matches is essential to achieve this target. Every round must be played by the due date.

Telephone your opponent(s) early – don’t wait for them to call you.

Be ready with at least two dates when you can play and, in the summer, be prepared to play in the evening.

The intervals between rounds are long enough to find a date so always arrange yours early.

Expect to be disqualified if you have not played by the deadline!
